Doc Band...

Some people have noticed, either through pictures or in person, that Rogue's head is not round but very square shaped...good news bad news then good news again. Good news, there is something to fix it and help make it round...its called a Doc band created by "Cranial Technologies". Bad news, insurance doesn't cover the price of it...so it is all out of pocket. Good news, we have family who were able help with this process financially. So in the end all Rogue now has a very fancy and expensive helmet...she will be wearing the helmet for the next 3-6 months...we decided its better for her to crawl around with a helmet now rather than run around the rest of her life with a square head...in the pictures below you will see what her helmet looks like. This is going to be sort of a process for us to deal with so to help ease some of the nuisance of seeing this big ol' helmet for the next 3-6 months I will get the opportunity to get a little creative and do some painting on it...some of the rules with the doc band is that she has to wear it all the time except for 2 hours a day. She will have to learn to sleep in it and adjust to everyday life with it on...it will be a process for her and an adjustment for ourselves...now we have another unique feature added to our family and people ALWAYS feel they have a right to now about "our" unique situation...well now we will not only have to field the triplet questions but also the helmet questions...yippee...oh well it is a "new" part of life...here we go feet first. Sorry I think I sounded a little harsh there...ummm yeah sorry. Oh well now for the pictures...enjoy.

There it is, in all its glory...


Showing off the back...


Yes she can see even though it seems like she can't...


Learning to deal with it...


Trying to make a break for it...
